GREYSTONE GRANGE. London: John Bumpus, 350, Oxford Street, W., n.d. [1888]. Octavo, pp. [1-4] [1] 2-173 [174: blank], rebound in modern green cloth, leather spine label. First edition. Published in December 1888 in paper wrappers at 1/-. A domestic melodrama set among English visitors in Algiers takes on a Gothic mood when the action returns to the gloomy old grange in England, where the young heroine-in-peril observes strange mysterious comings and goings, ominous foreigners, a gender-crossing impersonation, socialists with dynamite, and finally an act of arson that reduces the grange to a picturesque ruin. A non-supernatural mystery story. Rebound without the original wrappers, otherwise a fine copy of a book that is scarce both institutionally and in trade. (#130262).
